Donating unwanted goods

Leaving us a legacy
Having a will and keeping it up-to-date helps ensure that your wishes can be respected. Making sure your property and assets benefit the people and causes you really care about. We would always recommend that you speak to a qualified professional, such as a solicitor, when making or amending your will.
Your solicitor will be able to advise you on the required wording to carry out your wishes. If you wish to leave a gift to Age UK Worcester & District in your will, all you need is our charity details below:
Age UK Worcester & District, Bank house, 7 Shaw Street, Worcester, WR1 3QQ
Registered charity number 1114859
If you already have a will and you want to include a gift to Age UK Worcester & District in it, there may not be need to rewrite it. You can ask a qualified professional such as a solicitor to add an amendment (called a codicil). As a general rule, if the change you wish to make is quite small or simple, you can use a codicil. If the change is more significant or complex you should make a new will.
What is Gift Aid?
For every £1 of value that your donation represents, we can make an extra 25p when you sign up for Gift Aid. Because we reclaim the tax from the government, it doesn't cost you a penny more than what you've donated.
How do I add Gift Aid to a donation?
You need to make a Gift Aid declaration so we can claim the Gift Aid on your donation. If you donate online through our PayPal Giving Fund page, you'll receive an email receipt, once you've donated, with a button to click to boost your donation by 25%. If you are donating to us by cheque, please ask us for a Gift Aid declaration form.
